Neuroplasticity, Mindfulness, DNA Reprogramming,
Are you ready willing and able to enter the labyrinth of the sensational dynamic world where Quantum Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Neuroplasticity and DNA Reprogramming converge, interact and influence mind over matter?
"The Mind is everything. What you think, you become." - Buddha
In 1984, Dr. David H. Hubel, who won the Nobel Prize for his discoveries concerning information processing in the visual system, remarked, "The Mind is Obsolete." He was referring to the conclusion of Newtonian mechanical researchers who equate their brain scans and neuronal circuit diagrams with a full understanding of mental processes.
Our guest Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., a leading Neuroplasticity Researcher, Neuroscientist and Research Psychiatrist states in his book, “The Mind & The Brain, Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force”, “Some neuroscientists are embarrassed by the word, ‘mind’."
You are probably asking yourself how can that be? Well it's easy when you can understand that the neuroscience community is broken down into two distinct World Views, the Newtonian Physics World View and Quantum Physics World View.
The Newtonian Physics model is based on reductionism, determinism and materialism. This World View model is very seductive and pervasively influential because this mechanistic paradigm is simple, coherent and with a supposed completeness. The Quantum Physics World View is infinitely open, exploring the behavior and the interaction between matter and energy with consciousness. It embraces the concept that the external world manifests itself depending on how you observe it, meaning there is no separation between you and your environment. How you feel and how you observe your external world is how it will show up in your environment, meaning your life. In the Quantum World View, the universe is not a separate and independent machine acting mechanically as Isaac Newton believed, instead it's an interactive, interconnected, malleable and creative universe that is shaped by how we perceive and observe it.
It is so alarming to find out that not too long ago science believed that the capacity of the brain was fixed. Science assumed that the brain that we were born with until early adulthood was all that we had, and from there it was all down hill. The new science of Neuroplasticity has completely changed all of that. Our brain is like a muscle – our mind can be trained to improve intelligence, learn new skills, be kinder, be happier and be more content etc.
"Brain lock" is a term coined by Dr. Schwartz to describe obsessive-compulsive behavior and to describe a treatment plan he published in his 1997 groundbreaking book “Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior.”
In the book Dr. Schwartz claims that obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) are a result of a bio-chemical imbalance where brain functions will get "locked" in an obsessive-compulsive pattern and that OCD can be self-treated by following four steps:
1. Relabel the obsessive thoughts and compulsive urges as obsessions and compulsions, not as real thoughts.
2. Reattribute the obsessive thoughts to a brain malfunction called OCD.
3. Refocus on a wholesome, productive activity for at least fifteen minutes.
4. Revalue the entire obsession and compulsion group as having no useful meaning in a person’s life.
In his latest book, “You Are Not Your Brain, The 4 Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking and Taking Control of Your Life”, he delves deeper into deceptive messages from the brain and the four step solution for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio was accurately and profoundly coached by Dr. Schwartz for his role of Howard Hughes in the film "The Aviator". DiCaprio actually induced a transient Obsessive Compulsive Disorder after immersing himself 100% on a cellular DNA level portraying Howard Hughes. It took him three months to get rid of the disorder. His endorsement for Dr. Schwartz for this book was...
“A testament to mind over brain ... It's the truth of the matter that sheer willpower can truly make you break free.”
“Operating on the highly rational perspective that we are not our brains, but rather, substantial free agents who exercise control over our
brains, Schwartz and Gladding develop a simple, yet profoundly insightful approach for developing a flourishing life.
The result is truly life-giving, and it will bring healing and hope to all who read it and practice its wisdom.”
J.P. Moreland, author of “The God Question”
"How can the brain, which is just a complex network of interconnected nerve cells, give rise to consciousness and to thought?
Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz and Dr. Rebecca Gladding argue, persuasively, that the mind actually has massive causal effects on the functioning
of the brain. In other words, you can not only change the way you think, feel and behave through conscious effort when you're upset,
but you can also change the programming and chemistry of your brain. A compelling and important message."
David Burns, M.D., author of “Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy”
“The idea that we can deliberately and systematically change our brains with our minds was once thought ridiculous. But now, largely
due to Jeffrey Schwartz and his UCLA research on neuro-plasticity and OCD, this once revolutionary idea is well accepted. Rebecca Gladding
and Jeffrey Schwartz adapt Schwartz’s extraordinarily successful program for a mainstream audience giving simple, self-directed tools to
help achieve greater happiness, emotional balance, and overall well-being.”
Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of “The Mindful Child”
"This book will be very helpful to those who want to improve their outlook and quality of life. As this book shows, and most every
musician knows, You Are Not Your Brain. The Heart and the Spirit are the source of real creativity. The brain is a vehicle to express that
Kenny Burrell, National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and Professor of Music and Ethnomusicology, UCLA

About Our Guest
Jeffrey M. Schwartz M.D. | Biography
Our compassionate, passionate, humanitarian and brilliant guest is Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D. He is a Research Psychiatrist at UCLA School of Medicine and a seminal thinker and researcher in the field of self-directed neuroplasticity. He is the author of over 100 scientific publications in the fields of neuroscience and psychiatry, and several popular books including “You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking and Taking Control of Your Life”, co-authored with Rebecca Gladding, M.D. (2011), as well as “The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force” (2002), and “Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior” (1997). Dr. Schwartz has been featured nationally on prominent TV shows, including Oprah, 20/20, Today Show, Donahue and Leeza. He was a consultant to Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio on The Aviator (and appears with them on the bonus DVD extras of that film) and appeared in Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
Dr. Schwartz's primary research interest over the past two decades has been brain imaging and cognitive-behavioral therapy, with a focus on the brain mechanisms and psychological treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Dr. Schwartz's most recent academic writing has been in the field of philosophy of mind, specifically on the role of volition in human neurobiology. He has also applied his approach of "mind over brain" to the fields of business leadership and organizational behavior, as featured in two articles in Strategy+Business magazine in 2006 and 2011.
After receiving an honors degree in philosophy from the University of Rochester, Dr. Schwartz began to devote a substantial amount of time to Buddhist philosophy --- in particular to the philosophy of mindfulness, or conscious awareness, which revolves around the central idea that the mind is an active participant in the world and that its actions have a physical effect on the workings of the brain. He thus set out to find a scientific underpinning for the belief that mindfulness affects how the brain functions, and in the 1990s finally made his key discovery at UCLA. As shown on PET scans, a four-step cognitive behavioral therapy that he has pioneered is capable of actually changing the activity in a specific brain circuit of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Dr. Schwartz's current passions include the philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, classic jazz, and the role of Christian meditation in enhancing mindful awareness and it's effects on mind-brain relations.
